Two 12V sealed lead acid batteries contained within the portable runway lights provide up to 16 hours continuous operation before recharge is necessary. This is then achieved either on the CALKIT™ trailer or by means of a freestanding battery charger, both of which use a simple drop in charging system. CORELs are fitted with a low voltage cut off facility that ensures the batteries cannot be damaged by being deeply discharged. As an indication of operational readiness the lights offer a visual display of both charge status and battery level by means of a tri-colour LED mounted on the upper section of the COREL.

For increased stability when deployed the portable runway lights can be mounted on individual base plates that are anchored to the ground ensuring resistance to jet blast.

Our case studies section gives examples of how the COREL is currently being used to support airport and airfield operations around the world.
